Global Cancer Update Program

Unifying research on nutrition, physical activity and cancer

Global Cancer Update Program provides an analysis of international scientific research into how diet, nutrition, physical activity and weight affect cancer risk and survival.

The program is produced in partnership with American Institute for Cancer Research, World Cancer Research Fund in the UK and Wereld Kanker Onderzoek Fonds in the Netherlands. As part of its development, the Global Cancer Update Program has built the largest cancer prevention database in the world, housed at Imperial College in London. It is the only authoritative scientific resource of its kind, is evaluated by an independent panel of leading cancer experts, and to date contains approximately 12,000 papers on cancer prevention and survival.
